"Barry" Vm GUd to Go.
"Well, am I crazy? ' After two New
York physicians had for two hours ex
amined Maurice Barrymore, the insane
actor, at the pavilion in Bellevue hos
pital, he asked them this question. He
seemed half amused at the physicians'
efforts to find out just in what way his
mind was unhinged. "You should
know hy this time whether 1 am crazy
or not, taking me from intellectual
stem to stern for two hours. You sure
ly should know whether I'm' sane or
noLV The doctors made no direct re
ply. They found him verging on pa
resis and decided he had best be sent
to a private sanitarium in Astoria.
"You're going away," they said to the
actor. "All right," he replied; -I'll be
flail to go."
Copenhagen has just celebrated a
sort of jubilee, the 700th anniversary
of the death of her founder. Bishop
Absalon. Where 700 years 'ago there
only existed some poor, fishermen's
huts, the Danish capital at that time,
being Rcskilde, there is now situated. a
modem capital city, with about 500 in
habitants. During many? centuries
Copenhagen increased slowly, and 100
j cars ago it had only 100,000 inhabit
ants; but the growth of the last thirty
years has beeu enormous. A. great
monument in copper of Absalon, raised
by public subscription, and placed in
front of the new town hall, has Leen
, Julian Ralph's Theory.
T Hun Ralph explains the philoso
phy of the latest gorgeous pageant in
Loudon hy remarking that the English
people are so suffocated and chilled by
fogs and depressing climatic condi
tions that they hunger for relief In
-olor and merriment. That is why
they have the most gorgeous army in
Europe; that is why they drink more
than any two nations on earth; that is
why they wear more red on the streets
and keep up their medieval pageants
longer thin their neighbors, and are
the greatest patrons of the theater,
the most ardent lovers of pantomime
and ballet on earth.
A 94,000 Walnut Tree.
A mammoth black walnut tree on the
farm of E. P. Gaus, in Williams coun
ty, Ohio, has Just been sold for S4.000.
Several lumber dealers have examined
: chips from this tree, and all have de
clared it to be the finest specimen of
that kind of wood they ever saw. The
tree was eight feet in diameter, forty
feet above the stump and extended
seventy-three feet from the butt to
the first limb.
FROM DEATH'S DOOR.
. Hillsdale, 111., April 29th. Much In
terest has been aroused here over the
case of William Marks, who has been
in a dying condition for several
months with an apparently incurable
The leading physicians of this place
had pronounced his case a hopeless
one, ami others from Port Byron,
Geneseo, and Davenport, la., had at
tended him, and in a consultation de
ckled that he cpuld not live.
Jn desperation, his nephew inquired
of Mr. 1... F. Giles, a local druggist, as
to a last resort. Mr. Giles suggested
podd's Kidney Pills, a remedy which
had just been introduced here.
The results were marveloua. Mr.
Marks Immediately began to improve,
and within a few weeks was able to
be tip and about, completely cured.
His cure js the talk of the neighbor
hood, and -is considered nothing short
of a miracle.
There appears to be no doubt that
this new remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills,
will cure any case of Kidney Disease,
for the more malignant forms, such as
Bright's Disease, Diabetes, and Drop
sy, yield readily to its remarkable in
fluence. These forms of Chronic Kid
ney Disease have hitherto been consid
ered incurable, and have baffled all
medical skill, and yet. this new rem
edy has cured every single case In
which it has been used, in this neigh
borhood. TThe doctors themselves, arc
amazed at the wonderful work Dodd's
Kidney Pills are accomplishing in
Rock Island. County.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 4. The
most disastrous fire in the history of
this city began yesterday shortly after
noon, in a small factory, started by a
defective 'wire, .according to the best
belief, and burned for nearly ten
hooray, , In that time property damage
estimated from $10,000,000 to 115,000,
CTfTwas'caused. '""" ' U
According to the city map 130
blocks were -burned, many t of .them
in the heart of the busmen and resi
dence section, where the estimate of
houses to the block is ten. Many of
the finest public and private build
ings rwere destroyed, including hotels,
theater; churches and residences.
The casualties cannot be accurately
estimated tonight. That there were
several seems to be well authenticated.
Among them was that of Fire Chief
Haney, who sustained a bad fall. The
mayor ordered all saloons closed and
has Impressed help to clear the
wreckage. The mayor stated that he
estimated. the loss at $15,000,000 and
that 10,000 tc 15000 people were home
less. Along the entire length of Beaver
street, from Davis street to the creek
on Liberty street, all buildings have
been destroyed. This is fourteen sol
id blocks of residences. For the
same distance Ashley and Church
streets have both been completely blot
ted oat When the fire, reached
Bridge street in its eastward course
it enveloped In flames an area three
blocks wide, taking in Duval, Monroe
and the north side of Adams 'street,
burning the entire section of the city
and running fourteen blocks to the
Duval street bridge.
How much further in that direction
the city is burned it is impossible
to learn, the street being impassable,
but It is feared that St. Luke's hospi
tal was burned and it is said that the
Presbyterian church in Ea3t Jackson
ville Is ablaze. If this is correct, the
fire must have extended five blocks
further east The Are, which broke
out at 2:45 o'clock this afternoon, has
covered, as far as is definitely known,
a distance of two and a half miles
by half a mile wide.
When the fire reached Julia street
it was a roaring conflagration and
there was no prospect of it being put
under control. The local military com
panies were called out to keep the
crowds back and the fire department
began to use dynamite to blow up
houses a block from the fire hoping
thus to prevent the fire from spread
ing. So fierce was the blaze, however,
and so strong had become the wind,
that millions of sparks and flying,
burning shingles spread over five or
six blocks, setting the roofs of the
houses on fire in advance of the de
partment ' It is impossible at this hour to as
certain the losses, but it is, estimated
by insurance agents tthat it .will be
between 18,000,000 and 19,000,000. Six
live are reported lost in the conflagra
tion. The mayor has called a meeting
of the city council for tomorrow to
consider ways and means of reliev
ing the cufferers.

WASHINGTON, May 3. Midori Ko
matz, secretary of the Chinese lega
tion at Washington, in an interview
today with an Associated Press re
porter, made an interesting statement
of the financial situation of Japan. He
"A geod.-deal. comment has been
provoked about the financial condi
tions in Japan by the publication of a
very elaborate report sent to the Uni
ted States by Consul General Bellows,
and it is gratifying to ma to see the
American public taking so much inter
est in my country. While having no
hesitancy in endorsing the statement
contained in the consular report as
generally correct, everything has two
sides and it is a disagreeable thing to
have one's worst part exposed, the
better one being left out.
"I do not deny that our financial sit
uation today is anything hut satisfac
tory. It is true that the government
has deferred all such undertakings as
would Involve new loans. It is true
that a few local banks have been
compelled to suspend payment and
stringency is prevailing in the money
market. It is also true that our im
ports have increased tremendously
since the inflow of the Chinese indem
nity. The total value of our Imports,
which was 138.700.000 yen ($69,350,000)
in round numbers in 1895, the year the
peace treaty, was concluded, increased
to 324,700,000 yen in 1858, while the
value of exports was 118.000,000 yen
and 166,200,000 yen In thi respective
"You will be greatly mistaken, how
ever, if you Bhould attribute all this
to the improvident waste of money
or unproductive and useless enter
prises. Although a large portion of
the Chinese indemntiy has been used
for the redemption of war expenses
and military and naval expansion, yet
the estimate of iron foundries, the
extraordinary reserve fund and the
capital of local industrial banks have
drawn no small shares from it. Rail
ways, telegraph, telephone and. postal
service have made great strides in tie
last few years and an enormous
amount of money, has been absorbed
in their improvement and extension.
You will observe at this moment
twelve twin screw steamers of over
6,000 tons each, all newly built, ply

while three great merchaqt vessels,
recently constructed in England, are
running between Hong Kong and San
Francisco, under the managemet of
a Japanese company, and more than
hirteen steamers from 3.00Q to 5,000
tons, are being employed oq lines
to Bombay, Australia, yiadiYostock,
"Notwithstanding this, our public
debt, as it now stands, does not
amount to more than 437 900,000 yen
(flS.950.000). The foundation of our
financial arrangement is too firmly es
tablished to be affected by any tran
sient depression, any more than the
bottom of a river is apt to be shaken
by he feeble waves caused by a

(hat the present situation will result

PEKIN, May, 3. At a meeting of

Regarding the resources of China the
report was very voluminous. It was
practically a repetition of Jamesson's
well known pamphlet on the subject.
Sir Robert Hart offered suggestions
similar to those already credited to
him and cable to the Associated
Press. It is asserted that the reve
nues from all available resources will
not allow China to pay the indemnity
unless assistance is rendered.
The next meeting will be held next
Tuesday. The subject of Count von

WLI THINKS CUSTOMS TOO LOW.
Says Preseat Rate Is Inadequate to Pro

WASHINGTON, May 3. It is be
lieved here that the hitch which is
said to have arisen at Pekin over the
proposition to increase the Chinese
customs duties to meet the indemnities
demanded by the foreign powers is
caused by the uroaching by Mr. Rock
hill of bis plan for the abolition of
the likin duties as a condition for
his acquiescence in the customs in
crease. The United States govern
ment has in the past admitted a read
iness to permit the Chinese to increase
custom rates providing there was no
discrimination between the powers.
Minister Wu says that the present 5
per cent rate is totally Inadequate to
'provide a sinking fund for a new loan.

LINCOLN. Neb., May 4. The cere

inaugurated governor of Nebraska
was simple. The incomiug and out

office. Immediately, and without any
formality, Governor Dietrich signed
his name to the resignation prepared
in his office. This document was
then taken across the hall to the sec

that official. Mr. Savage was then
told of the acceptance. He walked

Governor Savage's first official act
was the signing of the senatorial com
